Forum: opensource Subject: OS X -- can't drag/drop some Open Source doc URLs from Chrome to Finder

Hi,
I find it very handy to simply grab the little "lock" icon in Chrome, and drag that into a Finder folder of various history books I'm working on. The result is simply a shortcut to re-open the Internet Archive document in my default browser (Chrome). In other words, these little things are like browser bookmarks, but in a Finder folder that automatically list the document's title. (less typing at my end)

The problem is, some documents on Internet Archive don't let this operation happen. I drew on top of a screenshot to show my workflow. Here is a case where this operation is NOT allowed:

The other ones you see in the finder window all came from Archive.org books in the past 20 minutes however, and without issue.

I can't figure out the problem. Any workaround??
